FICA SERVICES

FICA benefits from the expertise and collaboration of its member players’ associations. It offers a range of services to both its member players’ associations and the collective of players it represents.

  • “In an increasingly challenging landscape for cricket around the world, it is imperative that players are both well informed and consulted on all matters concerning our game. FICA bears the responsibility of acting as the collective voice of players, not only ensuring that their concerns are heard, but that decisions that shape the future of cricket are taken in the best interests of the global game.”

    Vikram Solanki - President

  • “Players around the world are trying to build successful careers in a game that is rapidly changing. It is our role to ensure that players’ interests are protected and that players are a part of guiding the direction of the game.”

    Graeme Smith

  • "Women’s cricket is the fastest growing part of the game, and ensuring all players are represented globally will be a huge positive for players and the game.”
